Question: What is an OVA File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an OVA file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an OVA file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .OVA extension are known as Octava Musical Score files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the OVA extension, please let us know.

How to open a OVA file:

The best way to open an OVA data file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the OVA file.

This data file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the OVA file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

first things first: there's also a vm-related file type bearing the same extension

about the music related .ova: as far as I know, octava itself is the only tool to open and convert them. Conversion is best done into MusicXML, which may then be translated into lilypond or whatever.

For any people in need to typeset music, I do recommend GNU lilypond. If you don't like the textual interface, get one of the many graphical front-ends, my recommendation would be Denemo, if you're willing to learn it (it's well worth that effort). Many people like the ease of use in Frescobaldi, which is also used by many of the lilypond developers AFAIR.

Btw, I'm not involved in the development of lilypond but rather an enthusiastic user.
